    a message appear yahoo messenger stop working, I use windows vista

  • Anonymous Mar 01, 2009

    At first, my computer would not let me download the messenger and kept telling me that I needed to retry the download from and administrator account. Very annoying due to the fact that I AM the administrator! I tried over and over again until I got mad and left it all alone for about a week. So I made another attempt to download and the download went fine but then some message came up saying that version, 9.0, had a problem finishing the install and would I like to try an alternative that might install properly instead so I did that and it finished the installation. I even restarted the computer. The messenger came up on the desktop right away and asked for me to sign in as usual. However, no attempt to sign in worked. So how I have the messenger but I cannot use it at all! I have a trip to South America planned for the month of June to fly down and do some work in Paraguay and I cannot connect with my contact there to get any further information regarding this upcoming travel, my job description, where to stay or anything at all! I don't know what is happening! I used it for several years without any huge problem at all. I have followed all of the troubleshooting advice to no avail. Please rectify this as soon as possible! I am worried I might lose this business opportunity in South America!

Sir, I am facing very serious problem with my PC.Whenever I play a heavy game or do heavy application or even when I insert my Pen Drive into my PC then the Temperature of my PC is increase to 90 degree...

The RAM showing less is quite normal. The temperature of the CPU is too high. Clean out all the dust inside and out, and have new thermal compound pasted between the CPU and heatsink. You may want a technician to do this safely.

Call of Duty runs in slow motion follow-up

Your system is more than enough. But your video card might not be
or it has problems. Onboard video is very poor to begin with.
Which ever you have,make sure you have the newest drivers for your
graphics. Have you installed any of the patches for the game?
if not you might want to look at them after your sure you have the newest drivers and this only happens with this game.

Call of duty 4 is only asking for Pentium 4.
